5 Things Not to write on a Grad School Admission Statement

1. I would like to study at your institution because I've been rejected by my first 5 choices

2. I'm sure I'll be admitted; after all, I'm not exactly applying to Harvard, am I.

3. I would appreciate knowing your decision as soon as possible because next week I'm leaving for a monthlong trip to Europe.

(for the English major):

4. If I don't get in, all I can say is, Bummer.

5. Harry Potter rocks!

(As I typed this, I managed to knock the last accessory from my action figures off my desk. So maybe I was the culprit all along....)
